Here, guests will explore the best cideries and breweries from across British Columbia at 7,500 feet.
Last year, Big White Ski Resort was joined by Somersby, Lone Tree, Left Field, BX Press, Okanagan Springs and many more to serve up some of the province’s best adult apple juice and bevvies.
Tastings on Saturday will begin at noon, but doors are open an hour earlier. Two pieces of government-issued ID will be required to purchase wristbands. Big White IDs anyone that looks under 40, so come prepared for some flattery.
Tasting tokens can be purchased at the Village Centre for $1.50 each, or bundle up and buy in bulk—10 for $15, or 20 for $30. With a drink in hand, be sure to grab a dancing partner as the mainstage will feature live regae rhythms by Chipko Jones.
“Ciderfest is a great excuse for a day out with the family, enjoying the great outdoors and festival vibes,” Big White’s website reads. “We have a few surprises up our sleeve, so be sure to visit and join in on the fun.”
“There is lots for families to do too—we have a collection of local craft vendors joining us to show off their wares, kids games and a bouncy castle,” guest services manager Bethan Wetheral said.
The Big White Fire Department has something fun up their sleeves, Wetheral hinted, and the work experience program will be manning the dunk tank with all proceeds going back to the fire hall.
